Invasive Species

Hard

(Originais Teachy 2023) - Question Hard of Environmental science

In the state of Florida, the Burmese python, an invasive species, has been causing significant harm to the local ecosystem due to its predatory behavior and rapid reproduction. These snakes, native to Southeast Asia, have no natural predators in Florida and have been consuming large quantities of native wildlife, leading to a significant drop in biodiversity. Considering this context and your knowledge about the impacts of invasive species on ecosystems, how could the introduction of the Burmese python in Florida affect the trophic structure and the overall ecosystem services? Furthermore, how might these changes affect the human communities that depend on these services?
a.
The introduction of the Burmese python in Florida disrupts the trophic structure and overall ecosystem services, but these changes do not have any significant impacts on human communities that depend on these services.
b.
The introduction of the Burmese python in Florida only affects the trophic structure but has no impact on the overall ecosystem services, hence it does not affect human communities that depend on these services.
c.
The introduction of the Burmese python in Florida enhances the trophic structure and overall ecosystem services, leading to an increase in biodiversity and positively affecting provisioning, regulating, cultural, and supporting services.
d.
The introduction of the Burmese python in Florida has no significant impact on the trophic structure and overall ecosystem services, as it adapts to the existing ecosystem without causing any harm to biodiversity.
e.
The introduction of the Burmese python in Florida can disrupt the trophic structure and overall ecosystem services, leading to a decrease in biodiversity and affecting provisioning, regulating, cultural, and supporting services. These changes can have significant impacts on human communities that depend on these services, including livelihoods, tourism, human health, and agriculture.

The Burmese python, native to Southeast Asia, has been introduced into the Florida Everglades and is now considered an invasive species. The python's expanding population has led to a drastic decline in small mammal populations in the Everglades. Based on the principles of ecology and the features of invasive species, how might the introduction of the Burmese python impact the overall biodiversity of the Florida Everglades?

Invasive species are non-native organisms that cause harm to ecosystems where they are introduced. They can disrupt the balance of these systems, often leading to negative effects on biodiversity, economic damage, and even human health. Based on your understanding of the concept of invasive species and their impacts, describe how the introduction of an invasive species can lead to a cascade of changes in an ecosystem. In your response, consider how the invasive species might affect various trophic levels and also discuss potential long-term consequences for the ecosystem's biodiversity.
